Holiday Inn Port Washington
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Port Washington
Reviewed February 16, 2014

An older holiday inn with an average décor and rooms. Great location next door to the Duluth Trading CO, the port park and the historic downtown. Is defiantly worth the little drive off the interstate.

I was a little afraid to stay here after reading some of the reviews but decided to chance it because the views looked amazing and we are so glad we ended up staying here. The hotel is in an amazing location with lake and marina views and it is close to tons of downtown shops and places to eat. We booked a 2 queen bed suite with lake views for around $120 on a Friday night (with a corporate discount) and this suite was enormous!!! The bathroom had a whirlpool tub and shower in it, there is a separate living room with fridge and microwave with great views of the water and then the bedroom was on the corner so it had amazing views from both windows on either side. The room is a little dated and the mattress could be replaced but it wasn't uncomfortable. The only wierd thing is that the pool and hot tub area has huge windows where the people in the bar/lounge can watch everything which is normally okay but when there is a creepy bunch of old guys staring at me and my teenage daughter it was really uncomfortable. I'm sure it is a nice attraction for the bar area to be able to have the pool view but at what cost to the clients of the hotel? I was super happy with the location, views and the room; the hallways problably need to have a deep clean done on the carpeting or rip it out and put in different flooring, there is definitely a weird smell in the halls. As for the pool area im sure most of the time it's fine it just depends on the clients of the bar/lounge. Also i should say that i booked this hotel on the drive from Sturgeon Bay (where there were no rooms available) about an hour from our arrival time on my phone. It was easy, accurate and our room was waiting for us when we got there!

This was our first stay at the holiday inn in port washington but will not be our last. Great service location was great beautiful views of the lake. We can't wait to return. We loved the pool and the resturant every one was so kind.

We stay at this hotel every year for our annual Family Reunion mainly because we're allowed to bring in snacks and beverages for our event. The staff is very friendly and accomodating and checkin and checkout went smoothly. The room was clean but with very out dated furnishings and the carpet definitely needs replacing. The hotel is in badly need of a major renovation or needs to be torn down and rebuilt. The location is ideal and the view spectacular of Lake Michigan but that's the only upside of the hotel. The hallways and elevator floors were dirty and had trash on them when we we arrived around 3 PM. Also the next morning at 8 AM the same trash was present in the hallways and elevator, apparently they don't have housekeeping on Saturday or Sunday mornings. One would think that appearance would be important but that's not the case. The lounge downstairs was nice but once again needs a major renovation, not very inviting. Would not stay again if not for the reunion as I'm sure there are other nicer hotels in the area for the same price. Also there wasn't a breakfast at the hotel but I can recommend Tello's down the street for breakfast. Good food and excellent service at a reasonable price.

While my wife and I have travelled to Port Washington in the past, this was the first time we stayed at this hotel and it certainly will not be the last! We were there for a family reunion and reserved three rooms. My wife and I had an adjoining room with our son and his family while our oldest son had a room below us on the second floor. The hotel is very conveniently located in downtown Port Washington right on Lake Michigan next the marina and harbor.

While it's an older property, we found it be be very well maintained. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. There is an indoor heated pool with a hot tub, and there is also a small restaurant and lounge. While we did not eat there we did enjoy the lounge. We overhead a couple of guests complaining about the hotel not having a "free" continental breakfast but there are numerous restaurants and shops within walking distance.

While this hotel may not be the fanciest we've ever stayed out, they certainly earned our business and we will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Port Washington.

This hotel satisfied our needs for a place to stay but wasn't anything fancy. It didn't offer a continental breakfast but I can deal with that as there are plenty of restaurants nearby. The boat marina is only a 5 minute walk away which was convenient. We chartered a fishing boat in which we had to be on the boat at 5:30AM. I would stay again in the future due to its location. It is an old hotel/building that needs some updating but can't say enough about the quaint little town where everything is handy and has plenty of history!

I do recommend staying at the Holiday Inn but wherever you stay in Port Washington, you won't be disappointed. It is a great little town!

Room Tip: Only a short walk to the marina and many restaurants.

Tried for 3 weeks to get a hold of manager to reserve a room. 3 "messages" with desk attendant/s and 4 calls later I got a hold of him and no rooms left. He was extremely rude. Wouldn't stay any time soon.
